- TRIVIA -

Out Zone was released in August 1990.

Several characters from other Toaplan games make cameo appearances as powerups or bonuses :
* Six plane squadron from "Flying Shark" fly on the screen shooting enemies in an upside down V shape pattern.
* The "Truxton" ship follows the player helping out.
* ZIG-01 from "Zero Wing" flies on the screen dragging a bunch of '5000' points bonuses.
* Pipiru, Toaplan's mascot from "Zero Wing" can be summoned in level 1 from shooting a hole in a rock. It is vulnerable to all weapons, but it will bring a significant score bonus if safely taken to the level's boss.

Pony Canyon / Scitron released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Out Zone, Snow Bros. - PCCB-00044) on 21/10/1990.

- UPDATES -

Out Zone new version uses different enemies in some stages and has extra bonuses compared to the old version. The music sequences are also in different orders between the sets.
